The acoustics are remarkable. The architecture is beautiful. We saw Joe Hisachi there and it was a stupendous performance.

We visited for a Boston Symphony Orchestra performance. And while we enjoy classical music and attend shows often in the summer, the appeal was getting to see a show at Carnegie Hall. We had nosebleed seats, which were minuscule and extremely steep. I am 5'6",...More

When we visited NYC in July 2019, Carnegie Hall was on break (no performances). But we didn’t know they offered a tour of the performance hall. If you get a chance, I highly recommend it. So much history and fun information.

Incredible musical talent performs here. It's also a beautiful place to go to. The Carnegie family owned it till 1925. It's a great place to go for jazz and classical music.
